No longer will you be able to look degradingly at alfalfa as simply good cat- tle chicken and garbage compost. tell me they'll have us munching hay and oats grimaced a friend who heard the news. No. as a matter of the new alfalfa food is not. even in the category of cninchies. It is a bland white 90 per cent which is processed from the freshly squeezed juice of alfalfa. The United States Department of Agriculture Research Laboratory in recently announced success in converting alfalfa juice into food for man. Today the big squeeze is on. The California test plant is feeding field-chopped alfalfa into presses which produce 100 gallons of juice .per hour. And from that juice comes three pounds per hour of the new leaf food. have no doubt that alfalfa food substitute will be a commercial product within.two years. Several food companies are already planning active programs for said Dr. George 0. the research who has been experimenting with alfalfa uses since 1939. The soybean pioneered the age of food But with the surging world demand far food comes the realization that soybeans alone cannot feed the protein-hungry countries. Fifty .million acres of alfalfa in .the more than half of which is grown in the United appears to hold an answer.

Seventy-seven million tons of alfalfa a year are produced from the nation's 28 million acres of the crop. Only 48 million tons of soybeans are produced from its 56 million acres of crop. Grown at the rate of five tons per alfalfa produces two to three times more protein than grown at the rate of 30 bushels per acre. Alfalfa can produce more protein per acre than. any of the other 25 crops commonly grown in the U.S. for forage and grain. The obvious distinction between soybean food sub- stitute and the newly dis- covered powder is that alfalfa must be processed as a by-product of animal whereas soybeans Qan be harvested and shipped directly to the market. this very facr tor could hasten the pop- ularity of alfalfa powder production. As Dr. Kohler an economical advantage to have the alfalfa by- product. It is such a natural process it im- proves the animal making it easier to Scientists have Known for years that the world's greatest source of protein ties- in green and alfalfa leaves in particular. Yet the process of large- scale production of it in a tasty form remained a mystery. Who wanted to chew on bitter green The first breakthrough came in 1969 when agriculture research ser- vice under the leadership of -Dr. Kohler and E. M. refined a commercial process of making leaf protein concentrate. SAVED JUICE than dehydrate the whole they saved the juice and extracted' from it nutritious green powder. Chickens loved it but still it was just too grassy to be an inviting ad- dition to a tasty ground steak or Danish pastry. And so more intense ex- perimenting ensued'at the California lab until the final recent discovery that by carefully controlled heating a white pro- tein can be separated from the green protein. Wash dry and presto you have a bland .white superior to soybean in pro- tein content. It will be used in ground milk and other processed foods-. Not only the United but Europe too where alfalfa is known as lucerne is beginning to respond to the food value of this crop which has been buried in the pasture for so long. In England and northern France .there are pilot alfalfa producing leaf protein concentrate. GOOD SERVICE AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION 1 Guaranteed Servicing Rebuilding and Exchange ;
